This is Jack. I met him a few months ago as he is the curator of the DunkXchange, a traveling sneaker exhibit, show and convention with roots in New York City (you can head down bottom for the date, time and location of the next one). Jack is also an aspiring DJ, and he’s been chronicling his travels across the nation. This visual follows Jack during recent gigs to Las Vegas and Japan.
Well, seeing as how he’s also on that list of injured NBA players, I’m going to assume Joakim will have plenty of free time while he recuperates.
Bulls’ center Joakim Noah grew up listening to Fela Kuti with his tennis star father, Yannick Noah, and his Cameroonian soccer champion grandfather Zacharie Noah. Above, Joakim talks about Fela’s audacity to speak the truth on behalf of his people, Tupac as a new generation’s Fela, the importance of knowing one’s roots, and how Obama sonned him. – OKA
By the way, Fela Kuti > your favorite ignorant rapper.
The Slaughterhouse machine stopped by The Come Up Show and kicked lines over Freeway’s classic. Yeah, bars are recycled… but it’s always interesting (atleast to me) to hear them over different instrumentals.
With a song title like that, there should be enough bitties in the video to inspire Scumbag Scott to craft those disgustingly entertaining tales in the c-section for years to come. Or a week, depending on the depravity of his mind. June 5th…

I (personally) haven’t heard anything from the San Francisco based duo since last year. Whether they have been releasing new material since then is unknown to me, but I do know they just released this new video. Which will land on their upcoming release, Love And Other Drugs. Dope. UPDATE: Turns out the duo did release something… their four-track Audiobook EP with Jeremy “Zodiac” Rose (The Weeknd’s What You Need). I’ve included it after the jump incase y’all missed it like myself.

The effort put into the subtle ideas in this video are pretty dope. I wonder how long it took to spell out Tab One with the makeshift Fruity Pebbles haha. Look for this to live on Tab-One and Sunshine J’ upcoming project, Madflowridiculous.
